Reference book on antique globes.

Ground-breaking exhibit of the globe collection of Rudolf Schmidt of Austria, held at Christies. Not an auction catalog, but an exhibition catalog, with globes from other sources shown as well. Many color illustrations, with easy-to-follow useful captions. Short articles by Elly Dekker and Arthur Middleton on globe history, and Sylvia Sumira on globe construction.

Fine unused condition.
